I am new to this forum, but have been a camaro buff since I was a little boy. My dad gave me his 69 camaro z-29 when I was 16 years old. Since then, I have restored it almost completely to original conditions besides some minor things and most importantly the DZ 302 motor. Currently, I have the ZZ4 350 crate motor from Chevrolet, and I was thinking about dropping the ZZ502 motor in the car, but I really want to put an original DZ 302 motor back in the car because let's face it, it is the quickest and most wicked small block chevy motor ever made.... I have found this motor on ebay, and it looks like the closest motor that I could get besides the original.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-Camaro-Z-28-DZ-302-ALL-NEW-/290579704980?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43a7e66c94
Could anybody give me some beneficial information on whether or not this is real, which I have done everything I can, and it looks to be a legitimate re-built 69 camaro dz 302 motor with all original parts, but I would rather rely on more knoweledgeable wisdom than mine.
I talked to the guy who built the motor, and he said that some of these motors did not come with the vin stamp, most did, but some did not. That was a major question for me since I did not see one in any of the pictures.
Even though this is not the original motor, I believe that the value added to the car will more than make up for the cost. I will probably never get rid of my car because it was my fathers, but spending $6,000 on a motor to replace a perfectly good motor with 20,000 miles on it is no small decision.
I appreciate whatever information you may have. I will post my vehicle's number as soon as I can get them written down just for thoghts. Thanks again.
